Pelosi and Schumer Take a Knee for George Floyd and Others
CNS News ^ | 8 Jun 20 | Susan Jones

Posted on 06/08/2020 9:55:53 AM PDT by SkyPilot

Rep. Pelosi and Sen. Schumer lead Democrats in 8 minutes, 46 seconds of silence.

Showing their solidarity with Americans protesting the police killing of George Floyd and other black men, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), and many of their fellow Democrats knelt in silence for 8 minutes and 46 seconds at the U.S. Capitol on Monday.

That's how long a Minneapolis policeman kept his knee on George Floyd's neck, until he lost consciousness and died. The horrifying moments, as Floyd lay handcuffed on the ground, happened as three other officers stood by and did nothing and as members of the public recorded the event on cell phone cameras.

Pelosi and Schumer prefaced the event in Emancipation Hall with a few remarks:

Pelosi invoked the "tragedy" and "horror" of slaves being forcibly brought to America, "and then all of the consequences of that."

The insanity grows with each passing day. Down the rabbit hole we go.....

I would not be surprised at all to see these clowns kneeling before this by next week.

I have the luxury of working remotely and for the last few months I’ve spent my time in northwest Puerto Rico on the coast. What a beautiful place to ride out COVID and none of the nonsense going on in the mainland is going on here.

Schumer should "take a knee" to the groin.   (I'm sure we could easily and quickly form a very long line of volunteers who would relish giving that slimy slug a good, swift, knee to his groin!)
